If you’re not going to unlock DLC nefs:
  • At the very least please consider enabling the folder method for DLC cars so we can use liveries for models that existed in previous DiRT titles.
  • Better, please consider also making DLC car textures available to the community somehow. This way the few people you're concerned about still can't rip you off, and there’s even more incentive to purchase your DLC because we’ll be creating a wealth of amazing livery content.
  • If you won’t do either of these… You need to invest in better liveries for DLC cars, or in comprehensive livery editing tools. With love and respect, the livery options we have in DR2.0 just aren't good enough. What will these cost you to implement? What is the cost of an increasingly disillusioned community?

Why not create only folder skin for DLC cars?

This is essentially what @pigloaf is saying.  It's also the most likely thing we have a chance of getting.

Don't un-encrypt the cars, i understand the reason not to, but at least allow the game to read folder structure for those cars, the same as the rest of the game does, so if people can fab up a livery, they'll at least be able to use it.

The main reason you’ve encrypted these files is based on the concern that if left unencrypted, players won’t purchase the DLC but will export the DLC models and replace the model of an available car. Some perspective:

I understood it that if the encryption is removed, the DLC cars will be available to anyone with the base game without any exporting or tinkering whatsoever? I might have understood that wrong though.

Yes it could be that - I might have understood it wrong instead. 

Either way all the other feedback still stands of course. Folder method needs to be working for DLC content.

You can expect a sales increase if you unlock the car's liveries, that's guaranteed. It'd be the best of both world if you could keep the car models locked but allow liveries to be installed like launch-cars.

how on earth can you guarantee that? there's just people waiting in the wings to buy the game and/or DLC so they can get mods on the small number of DLC cars?

The motivation to buy content will be bigger than the motivation of driving a bland Focus 2007.

Those who pirate, will still be able to pirate it. Those who are loyal and buy, if you keep liveries locked you can lose some of those numbers.

@Riggs for sure, but as I said, it's not like there's a big crowd of people waiting to get the Focus or whatever. the people who are unhappy with it have it. the rest overwhelmingly don't know or don't care. any returns are negligible, let's be honest now.

Those that are unhappy might wait when it comes to future DLC cars until they see the liveries. If these are decent or really cool, they are more likely to buy them. If these are not, there will be a number of people not buying it because why would you buy something if you know you won't use it anyways. 

I made a suggestion about a possible sollution to @PJTierney and I'm waiting for an answer... 😄

Can we just have an official livery for the Focus 2007 at least. It is very disappointing that we did not get this. It

makes the difference if you drive the car or not. It's left in the garage for me.

@PJTierney

Hi,

would it be possible for you to include the texture pssg files in the game placed at \DiRT Rally 2.0\cars\XXX\livery_00\textures_high?

The DLC cars will not work with only these files.

I can pass the feedback on.

@PJTierney Hi, any feedback from the team on this solution?

Not on this specific topic, no.

I think right now the plan is to continue as-is, but at a later point we may revisit.

Is this due to that it is to much work to implement technical or is more of a policy decision?
